Kayla loves to do SO many things. Cleaning is not one of them. Not shocking. But seriously, it’s pretty bad. The child. Just. Does. Not. Want. To. Clean. Up. EVER. It drives Craig to the brink of insanity. Clearly our child suffers from Inherited Anti-Cleaning Disorder. It’s actually quite common in children these days, though infrequently diagnosed.
You see, Craig has always been a neat freak. And then he met me. In theory I like order and organization. I have no problem weeding through a closet or re-organizing something but I literally loathe cleaning. Yes folks, she gets it from her mama and I will take all the blame.
I also get the joy of being the one who works from home. That means I spend approximately 20% of my time walking on Lego and Shopkin land mines. That’s right. I made my tiny toy filled bed and now I have to sleep in it.
Or not. The organizational part of me pawed through Kayla’s entire room and got rid of about 60% of the junk that was in the way of the things she actually plays with. It’s amazing what a year of birthday parties, holidays and a child who LOVES art will do to a space. Then I got lockable plastic boxes for the small toys. They’re Blake-proof. At least, for now.
Now with the toy disaster out of the way, let’s talk about cleaning. Blake is CLEARLY Craig’s son because he loves nothing more than pushing a broom around and scrubbing the floor with a baby wipe. Kayla on the other hand, is my daughter. She’s going to need a little bit of shiny new motivation.
So I made her a little cleaning kit of her own. One that she can tote around the house along with her mother (yes, I’m on the plan too) and I don’t have to be hovering over her or worrying about her spraying toxic stuff all over things she and Blake touch.
